It’s not uncommon for a person to own and operate a private jet, and now there is someone who has taken it upon himself to actually put together a video series highlighting the operation of a private jet and how it can be made even more convenient and affordable. In the first episode of the “blade-jet” series, Will Heyburn and Alex Trebek talk about how their company, called Blade Inc., has designed and built a personal jet and planned out its operations. The product is called the “blade jet,” and it is supposed to be the safest, most modern private jet ever created. Of course, in every segment of this show, Heyburn and Trebek also talk about the dangers and disadvantages of owning such a jet. It makes for a good reality TV show, but at the same time it also makes you think about how safe it is to fly in a private aircraft, especially one that is customized and built by an individual.
Birth of the Model Jet
This show takes air traffic control to the next level, because it does away with the bulky cockpit windows that often surround most commercial and private aircraft. Instead, the company’s new product has been designed with a flat, expanded glass that is only eight feet across. Since there are no controls below or above the pilot’s seat, this leaves more room to control the flight. Using a laptop computer, the pilot will be able to use the Internet to keep in touch with base and help maintain the plane’s schedule, as well as monitoring the safety and performance of the aircraft.
While the Internet may be one of the major tools of private jet travel, some of the best videos are the ones that reveal the inner workings of a working aircraft. There is plenty of computer science and mechanics behind the smooth operation of a commercial aircraft, and Heywood and Trebek do a great job of putting it all on the video camera. From the perspective of the consumer, this is a great way to learn about how a new product or innovative process works and why it might be beneficial to you. For instance, if you see an interesting product, you can ask the filmmakers about its potential benefits and decide whether it would be right for you. Watching the product in action can give you a pretty good idea of whether or not it might be something you might want to invest in.
